Home Back to Log 2007 World Voyagers Book Builders Notes
  I should have built this jig system before I riveted the top rails. It would have made it much easier to see what the bucking iron was doing. Having the tops right side up, flat on the table, supported on 6 inch blocks made seeing the underside for riveting quality impossible. I ended up with more than a few "sleeping" (bent over) rivets.  

Must cutaway J-stringer for hatch support
Gap between hatch supports too small. Bulkheads 16 and 18 will not stand up vertically.
Should have cut ALL longitudinal hatch supports 1/8"shorter on each end.
Not sure how I will cut them back now.
